Hamilton leads from Alonso (+ 0.302s) and Webber (+ 0.427s). Alonso had occupied first place for the majority of the session. Vettel is fifth, behind the second Ferrari of Felipe Massa.

Lewis is behind both the Mercedes drivers!

Schumacher please make a graceful exit - http://www.f1fanatic.co.uk/2012/10/1...cher-impeding/

Michael Schumacher has been handed his second reprimand of 2012 for impeding a rival during practice. If Schumacher receives a third reprimand before the end of the season he will receive an automatic ten-place grid penalty under article 18.2 of the Sporting Regulations.

Impeding RIVALS from HRT team!?

The stewards need to be a bit more serious when they hand out reprimands like these

Vettel did get into the racing line in Suzuka when Alonso was on his flying lap, he got a reprimand. Now this...!

Just watched FP3.

Think Vettel and Lewis will be front runners for Pole. Vettel was mighty fast on the super soft, 1m37.642s, 0.527s clear of Hamilton. Webber ran into engine issues towards the end and couldn't get the laps out.

Ferrari looks well out of pace for Qualifying. Even on super soft, the F2012 couldn't match the RBR timings on soft. Both Lotus in top 5 for FP3.

Another Vettel pole and run to victory I guess. This should be another easily predictable race!?

This is becoming like Adrian Newey vs Fernando. Cmon Ferrari step up!

Red Bull 1-2 for sure. Looking forward to the fight for P3.

Wonderful grid for tomorrow's race.
Webber drove one out of the hat to take the pole from Vettel.
With the Red Bulls locking out the front row and Hamilton and Alonso taking the second, it will be a great spectacle to see who will come out on top after the sequence of straights after the start.
The driver championship will depend on Alonso and Vettel's move in to these crucial corners at the start.

So its a RedBull front row, but with Webber on top. Well done mate! He did miss out on a lot of laps in FP3.

Alonso would have been better off at P3, but a good lap nonetheless for P4.

Button lifted for the Vergne Yellow Flag and also had a lock up which got him knocked out from Q2.

Vettel seemed dejected after missing out on pole. Good to see Weber on pole after a while. Just behind them is the trio of past champions, Hamilton, Alonso and Kimi. McLaren has been quick on heavy fuel runs. And for someone whose lead is all but gone, Alonso is still remarkably upbeat. By no means is it going to be a runaway victory for Vettel tomorrow.

I suppose that every driver does such stupid things before maturing into a great driver, aka Schumacher and Alonso.
